What Houzz contributors are saying:
Make guests feel at homeNew babies attract a lot of visitors, and having guests should be a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Take away any stress by encouraging friends and family to make their own tea and coffee by creating an easily accessible drinks station. Kit it out with the kettle, tea bags, mugs and some biscuits for good measure.
Decorate everything but the kitchen sinkKitchens in rented homes tend to err on the conservative side, but you can work around the standard neutral or monochrome units with colourful accessories. From containers and appliances to tea towels and blinds, kitchen décor is rich in colourful options.
Accessorise smartlyIf you’re not quite brave enough yet for bright units and walls, you can still do the indie kitchen with a neutral backdrop. In this majorly cute converted Victorian railway carriage, a coordinated collection of ceramics adds colour, life and whimsy, along with a matching tea towel and stool seat.
